The blog post is sponsored by Oars + Alps but all thoughts are 100% my own.
Y’all know I am always on the hunt for natural products, because hello, living with psoriasis and sensitive skin ain’t easy yall! That’s why I’m so excited to tell yall about Oars + Alps and why natural skincare products are so important for me.
When they reached out to me to see about trying out these products, I went on a research hunt. Because 1. If I can use it with my psoriasis and sensitive skin, then I need others to know about it and 2. I don’t share anything with y’all unless I truly believe in the product 3. I’m trying to live with all natural and clean products and if I can start with my skincare, that’s a game changer.
But you’re probably thinking? But Sabrina, Oars + Alps is made for men. Yes, but stick with me!
Did you know that Oars + Alps was founded by two women looking to change the way guys thought about skincare. “CEO Mia Duchnowski and CMO Laura Cox launched the brand in February with the goal of providing guys with top-quality, all-natural skincare products made for men who live an active lifestyle. The idea for the company came when the women found their husband’s needs for quality skincare products weren’t being met.” as stated by Business Insider.
Now that is good enough for me.
I feel good using these products because the ingredients are all natural and it’s sulfate-free, paraben-free- phthalates free. Which for those of us living with psoriasis and even sensitive skin, these chemicals can be irritants for the skin.
But the main ingredient in all of their products is Alpine Caribou Moss, as told to Everyday Girl .
We source Alpine Caribou Moss, a lichen native to the Arctic tundra, where it thrives amid nature’s harshest elements. Alpine Caribou Moss helps improve skin’s elasticity and contains powerful antioxidants that help fight UV radiation and guard against environmental pollution
They have all natural products with everything from deodorant, wake up stick, face and eye cream face wash, and bar soaps.
Now that’s something I can get behind. Not to mention, Chris usually ends up stealing some of my skin care products anyways. So maybe this time, he’ll feel better since it’s made for him in mind 🙂
What I Think About The Products
- Charcoal Exfoliating Wash: I have never tried a charcoal face wash before and I absolutely love this one. Natural charcoal draws out the dirt and excess oil that can clog pores.
- Face and Eye Cream: a light weight cream that is gentle enough to use in the morning and night.
- Wake Up Eye Stick: This is probably my favorite product. It cools and depuffs the under eye area. So even if you didn’t get a full 8 hours of sleep, it looks like you did!
- Natural Deodorant: So no lie, this one took some getting use to. But it’s been a few weeks now and I now I am a fan. Just reading more about all the chemicals in regular deodorant, didn’t sit well with me. Also, did you know: Antiperspirants and chemical-laden deodorants work to clog up pores and don’t allow the body to properly release the sweat necessary to cool down the body and release toxins (why they’re called anti-perspirants).” According to Everyday Girl.
Have you made the switch to all natural skin care products? I want to know below! Tell me if you’ve tried any of these all natural products or any others before.
